    Have you ever gotten so close to something so beautiful...

    Like you're at a museum, and behind the glass you see the most beautiful gem.

    A diamond that sparkles more than the night time sky.

    It captures you very heart, your soul.

    And you stare deeply, ponder in your mind what it would be like to hold that gem in your own hands.

    Day dream and live a fantasy about a life with that gem.

    But then you knock against the glass.

    You're reminded why you can't ever reach that gem.

    Because it's too special. She's too special.

    Your hands are filthy and dirty.

    You can only smudge the glass, because that's all you're worth compared to her...

    Just another fingerprint on the glass.

    I know that's not a poem, what is it? Very good besides, loved the metaphor.

    "Anything is a poem if you call it a poem." - A poem by 4xd

    this is obviously the unrefined version of my poem. I felt there was a certain allure to the unperforated way I originally spoke it.
